This post is a short guide on how to reset your Mi Band to its factory settings. A factory reset is a great way to troubleshoot persistent issues with your Mi Band.
A factory reset maybe your only option to fix issues with your band. However, I recommend that you first try rebooting your Mi Band. And we have a dedicated post on how to reboot your Mi Band.
If a reboot does now work to fix persistent bugs/get errors that you experience on your Mi Band, only then should you try and factory reset your Mi Band.
Keep in mind that after you’ve factory reset your Mi Band, you will need to pair it again with your phone and your favorite health app, Mi Fitness or Zepp Life and you will lose any personalized settings you have set on your Mi Band.
Here’s how you can factory reset your Mi Band.
Step 1: Go to Settings
In the main menu of your Mi Band scroll down and select Settings. On Mi Band 5 and older Mi Bands, click on More and scroll down to find the Settings menu.
Step 2: Click on Factory Reset
In the settings menu, scroll down and tap on factory reset.
Step 3: Click on Check Mark
To factory reset your Mi Band, tap on the check mark. You get a reminder that after you’ve factory reset your band, you will need to pair it again with Zepp Life or Mi fitness. Click on the check mark below the statement to continue.
If you have any trouble in pairing your Mi Band with your phone, we have dedicated posts on how to pair your Mi Band to your phone using Mi Fitness and the Zepp Life apps.
Factory reset is a great feature that fixes issues that you may have with your Mi Band. On my Mi Band 5, I had a lot of pairing issues, mainly from the Bluetooth, and had to factory reset my Mi Band a few times before I was able to pair my phone with my Mi Band.
